NO, but it was centered around LX453 to ZRH.

Started around 1010 when the crew called ATC for Airway Clearance.

LX453 left stand @ 1141...1hr 16 min late.....airbourne @ 1148

Judging by the amount of RWY used, I'd say there empty.

LX453:
Left LCY at 11:40 (instead of 10:25)
Arrival in ZRH scheduled at 13:00 (expected to land at 14:25)

So why pax + crew disembarked and airport closed???? Any news is welcomed!

I've posted what I can...heard over the tower freq....

Airport was closed as Fire Service were @ the aircraft, and no fire cover available.

When LX456 arrived @ 1131, they asked why the other aircraft was on the ground for, and were there slot delays to ZRH.

The tower advised them to contact the other aircraft on Swiss Comp Freq to ask.
